Healing looks good on injured cat caught in rat trap

Stripes The cat’s future is so bright it will have to wear sunglasses!

There is certainly a forever home on the rescue cat’s horizon, and it won’t be long before she can put her painful past behind her thanks to Meow Village, a volunteer cat rescue in Aurora, OR.

Stripes came to Meow Village after a Good Samaritan woman named Kristin found the skinny tabby cat in a back yard and a rat trap slammed on her left front paw. She managed to catch the injured cat and contacted Meow Village. The rescue posted a picture of the trap on social media, reporting that the trap “had sharp, jagged edges and part of its paw was cut off as a result.”

Meow Village cat lovers shared, “We can’t imagine the pain this cute girl went through before she was saved.”

Time for healing and home

Once at the vet, Stripes’ paw was heavily bandaged in the hope that the injured food would not have to be amputated. Although she did not lose her paw, she had to have surgery to remove the bone that protruded through the skin after the trap severed part of her paw.

Meow Village said, “She is a tough little girl. We say ‘little’ because she is severely underweight at only 5 pounds. “

But the cute older cat at the age of 10 is given plenty of food and healing in the arms of her foster parents, Kelli and Brian, who shower her with love.

She is a good and kind cat, but Stripes wasn’t a fan of the bandages on her paw and took them off twice. This deviousness brought them into a “cone of shame”. And when this didn’t please the striped lady either, she went to the “delightful donut”! In a couple of weeks, the stitches will be coming out of her paw, but until then she will be rocking her donut.

Healing fashion is beautiful

“A girl can never have too many fashion accessories. Plus, she thinks her orange slice donut makes her highlights stand out! “

Not only does she wear the collar well, but she rocks sunglasses too!
